Earlier this month, Purolator announced a nationwide partnership with Best Buy as part of Purolator’s plan to provide exceptional service to its customers this holiday season.

The company also grew its workforce, added new agent partners to bring more shipping locations closer to consumers, expanded its fleet and rolled out more digital tools to make it quicker to send and track packages.

“We continue to make investments in our network and customer experience to ensure we are ready to provide exceptional service as businesses and consumers gear up for the holidays,” said John Ferguson, President and CEO, Purolator. “We are expecting to process nearly 48 million packages during this busiest season of the year, and we’re ready to take on more! With this Best Buy partnership, we will now have more than 2,000 shipping locations across the country.”

Purolator customers can now drop off and pick up packages at 101 Best Buy stores across Canada. And while in store, customers can also check out Best Buy’s large assortment of holiday gifts for everyone on their list.

All Purolator shipping locations, including Best Buy stores, can be found using Purolator’s locator tool on purolator.com and its mobile app.
